Does anyone know if it possible to view HTML files stored on the iPad in either the browser or another app? IOW - if I backup a small website and put the files on the iPad can I then browse the website offline?
I'm looking for a very very simple app so that I can work on (edit & view offline) my webpage from the iPad. On my MacBook I use TextEdit to code. I do not want anything that writes code for me or makes changes to my code. Just to be able to edit .HTML pages, manually type changes, and then preview them.
I'm looking for a way to store and view linked electronical data on my iPad.
Use case: My mom is a tour guide. She has a lot of information to bring along, which she currently collects in word files and prints out and then has trouble finding again when needed. Because of the linked nature of the information, I'd go for a wiki, to prepare at home and then display on the iPad when needed. But at that time an internet connection is not given (tunnel, countryside) so everything needs to be stored on the iPad.
I see two ways to achieve this (there might be more):
1) Install php and set up a php webserver on the iPad, set up a wiki locally and store all the information directly on the iPad.
2) Set up a wiki at my web hosters, prepare the data when there is an internet connection and copy the data to the iPad with an offline wiki reader configured for my domain (at home).
Problems and thoughts:
- Is it possible to install php and a webserver on an non jailbreaked iPad? I'd rather not jailbreak my moms iPad...
- IMHO using pdfs poses the same problem of finding information as paper.
- I haven't yet found a wiki reader both configurable and offline ready.
-A 10 step process might be ok for me but again this being for my mom it should be simple. I'd rather not introduce another app like SiteSucker to copy the data.
I few days ago, I found a way using simple HTML files to play movies via AirPlay using the Safari browser. But I just got an update on the app oPlayer HD lite and they have enabled AirPlay for any mp4 movies...
This means that using the browser of OPlayer HD, you can click on any movie in mp4 format on any website and you'll be able to stream via AirPlay to your apple tv...Pretty sweet...
That means that I can have a local web server (apache), displaying any movie files from a hard drive, and play them directly on my iPad or stream them to my apple tv. No need for HTML pages or scripts. All you need is having the web server to list the content of the folder.
I just bought the CCK and was disappointed do find that the iPad would not read any of the raw-files that are stored on the SD-card. I can not find any list of supported craw types for CCK/iPad, so I would like to know if my camera is supposed to be supported or not. When I shoot raw, it does not find the images, and when I shoot raw+jpg, only jpb are copied to the ipad
When I go to iTunes/iPad/Apps and then choose Pages under "File Sharing" and move a few files over, where are those files stored? Does iTunes make another copy and store it somewhere or does it just reference the location I copied from?
Also, if I move a file over and then delete that file, does it delete from the File Sharing section as well the next time I sync?

I cannot access handling stored files on iCloud, through Settings on my JBed iPad Air. I only get the little spinning time-thingy for a brief time and then the bracket-like arrow returns. And nothing more happens...
The reason I need to access stored files is that I'm running low on storage capacity. And since I (somewhat foolishly) hooked my dauhters iPad Mini to the same account, and she loves making movies, the lion part of the 5GB soon diminished...
Now, I've stopped the saving of the cameraroll and suchlike to iClouds, but it seems a tad late... Thus, I need to clean the iCloud space. But I seem to be unable...
The only thing I remember installing since last time I could access the iCloud files, is the security patch I've read about (from Cydia).
I'm testing out how the email attachment works on the ipad. if i send a pdf file created from a grpahics program or a jpg file as an attachment to my ipad, it comes through as being part of the email body and not as a separate attachment. If i send a text document that was exported as a pdf from word, it comes through as an attachment and i can view it in pages. Does anyone know why this happens? If it is what it is, can i save the image or pdf file to pages?
As far as I can tell, backups seem to go really slowly for the sync after you transfer videos. That is, if there are no videos on the iPad, but you add them through iTunes for VLC or CineXPlayer, the videos copy over relatively quickly. You disconnect the iPad, and the next time you connect it and it starts syncing, it can take a REALLY long time, depending on how much video you have. As near as I can figure out, this is because iTunes backs up all the videos, because it can't differentiate the data that each app stores, and thinks it needs to be backed up. There doesn't seem to be a way to tell it not to backup the videos, just the app. Needless to say, if I add 20GB or so of video, it can take a REALLY long time to do the backup.
If you use a cloud service such as Zumo Drive, iDisk, or any others, do you keep the original file saved to your computer hard drive or a external hard drive?I have a bunch of files that I've uploaded to iDisk via the Documents to Go app.
I've figured that since the most up-to-date version is stored in the cloud, what is the use in keeping the original since it will always be outdated anyway?What are your thoughts? I'd like to see if maybe I'm missing something before I start deleting files
I teach architectural history at a local university, and use .ppt presentations for my lectures.File sizes range from 20 MB to 45 MB.I store all of my files in Dropbox, since I am constantly switching between my MBP and the university's PCs in various classrooms and need to be able to save edited versions back to Dropbox.I have an iPad, and would love to use it for reviewing .ppt presentations before class (i.e, not to edit, just view).The problem is that, at about 20 MB or so, which is generally about half the file, images don't load anymore.The .ppt slides (and usually text) load, but about halfway through, no images.I've inquired on Apple Discussions, but no solution.Is there a maximum file size that I'm bumping up against? Solutions which involve me having to download onto the iPad via iTunes are not satisfactory, as that version of the file isn't stored in Dropbox, and won't have subsequent edits.
